WOOD MAGAZINE QUIZ for 16 APRIL 13 "a learning tool"

Good Morning Friends,

Get creative with plugs; Whether you buy plugs or make your own, you can get creative and do more than just hide the screws.

 

How would you tackle this chore?

Remember to keep your hands no closer to a spinning blade or bit than 6" for safety sake.

Respectfully,

I sometimes cut square holes with the mortiser and cut square plugs from a contrasting wood.

Let the plugs protrude a bit for a different effect. You might also taper the edges for a "Stickley" effect.

There are many different techniques to do these, Joe mention one of them, and Russ has a good idea as well.

Good Morning Fellows,

You all are correct because one can do most anything using plugs as per the article on page 43 in issue 199.

 

Thank you all for your support.
